COP 19: Negotiators Laud African Civil Society Group

Warsaw: 15/11/13

The contributions of African civil society organisations to the consolidation of the African position at the ongoing Climate talks in Warsaw have been described as “integral and far-reaching”. The Chair of the African Group of Negotiators (AGN), Dlamini Emmanuel, expressed his appreciation of the activities of the CSOs at meeting with the coalition of African civil societies led by the Pan-African Climate Justice Alliance (PACJA).

The AGN Chair expressed his satisfaction with PACJA’s collaboration with his team as well reiterated his team’s commitment to the cry of African people as it relates to ensuring poverty eradication and food security, keeping the continent safe, sharing the atmosphere fairly, and ensuring that industrialized countries cut excessive consumption and pollution with emphasis on protecting and compensating affected communities as well as transferring the tools to adapt and develop the continent.

Responding, Mithika Mwenda, appreciated Dlamini Emmanuel’s continued engagement with African Civil societies over the past two years and his commitment to Africa. Mwenda assured him of the coalition’s readiness to continue to partner with the Negotiating group in every possible ways towards a concrete outcome for the continent in Warsaw, Poland.
